What is the Best Sealer for Pool Patio Concrete or Pavers that is not slippery?

If you are a homeowner that is lucky enough to have a pool you know how enjoyable they can be. Although there is some maintenance involved, pools can create a lot of fun family times. When it comes to the hard surfaces around your pool, they can be just as important to maintain as the pool itself.

There are a wide variety of materials used for pool patios or decks. Concrete or pavers are a common type of pool patio surface. To maintain a concrete or paver patio around the pool, it is common to clean and seal it on a regular basis. Every couple of years is typically the average for cleaning and resealing. Doing so will protect the area from harsh pool chemicals, sun fading, acid rain, erosion, and freeze/thaw damage.

Best Sealer for Pool Brick Pavers 2021

Finding the best sealer for pool patio concrete or pavers will ensure the area lasts a long time. Choose a sealer that is non-gloss to reduce the chance of creating a slippery surface. Being around a pool will obviously mean that wet feet will be walking and running across the surface. Making it too slippery with multiple applications of a glossy sealer is the last thing you want to do.

However, if you want to give the pool patio a wet look without the gloss, there are sealers that fall into that category. Sealers like SuperSeal M, Supreme Shield SB-600, or Surebond SB-6000 are great choices. These sealers penetrate the surface to create a barrier of protection without the glossy finish. Some Satin and Semi-Gloss sealers will work as well as long as they do not seal the surface 100%. These would be styrene acrylic-based sealers such as SuperSeal25.

There are also pool patio sealers that will not alter the appearance of the concrete or pavers at all but still give the surface adequate weather protection. It really comes down to personal preference, but creating a non-slippery surface that is water repellent is the goal. Sealing your pool patio concrete or pavers with the best sealer possible is good insurance to protect your investment. It will also ensure you maintain your outdoor living space so it is there to enjoy for many years.

Hi. I am trying to seal my pool pavers on y own for the first time. I’ve done so much homework my head is goinf to explode. SO here is my wish list; Shiny but not slippery glossy; spray on, no mixing. And of course the winning lottery numbers. I am on the west coast of central Florida. Lots of sun and salt, little worry about the cold. Can you help a rookie out? Thanks!

OK, thanks. But I guess being a novice I did not make myself clear. I cannot use a glossy finish because I’ve been told it is too slippery. I am looking for that “wet look” in a non-glossy spray. Do you think that exists? And where are my winning lottery numbers? HA! Thanks!

Looking to seal the concrete around my in ground pool. I have a salt water pool with a chlorine generator. Its not salt water like the ocean. The concentration is too low to notice but is better than chlorine tablets. What would be the best sealer to use to not change the concrete appearance and protect against pool chemicals?
Thank you

I used Eagle Paver Acrylic Sealer back in May for my dark grey brick pool coping but the pool water leaves mineral stains on them (which I thought was the purpose of sealing them ). Can I use something else over the current sealer to shine them up and actually REPEL the water ?

I am getting a pool put in with a Tremron paver deck with polymeric sand. I am interested in getting a non-slip sealer that will cover the entire deck including the coping. Should I just apply Super Seal M? It would be nice to give it wet look too but I do not want risk it getting slippery.

Please advise on what products you think best fit this application. Thanks very much.

I have stamped concrete around my pool that has been sealed at least three times. The sealer seems to fade and turn white after about 8 to 9 months. I am in Arizona not sure if the constant sun has anything to do with that. Any recommendations on what sealer to use considering there may be several layers of old sealer on the concrete?

So many options, I’ve recently poured colored concrete around pool and stamped and also have brush coping around the perimeter of the pool. Do not want gloss or shine need somewhat of a wet look to bring out the color. Can’t decide between SP 6000 or SP 600 or the Masonary saver decorative concrete sealer.

Hi. Thanks for the info! I was looking for an alternative to H&C xylene-based concrete stain, white opaque, for our textured concrete pool deck. The H&C stain needs to be re-coated every two or three years after repeated pressure-washings. Does another manufacturer have a product which is compatible with our surface? Thx. Pete C

Thanks very much. From reading …the masonry decorative sealer will end up giving a wet look with some shine? You feel it wouldn’t be to slippery by stamped concrete pool.. once allowed to cure 2 coats? It can be rolled on?Thanks

I have brick bullnose coping around pool and on top (bench) of hot tub. Coping around pool has become dull and looking for product to get wet / new look back as well as non slick. On hot tub bench coping replaced last year and still looks new. Water seeps in tiny cracks in concrete joints and eventually leach out on tile grout lines causing build up of what looks like calcium. See picture. Would any of the sealers products help to reduce, eliminate this leaching issue?

Ure-seal was used on the pavers pictured recently. The previous sealer was removed. Is it me or do they look like they are cloudy already.

Hi, just had pavers installed around our pool. I’ve read that you should wait for a year to seal? Is it doable to do yourself? What kind of sealer should we use around our pool? It’s chlorine. Should we use a water based joint stabilizer?

I have a salt water pool patio area that's roughly 800 sqft. Large Permacon cassara pavers installed few days ago. Looking for suggestions on both gloss and matte finish sealers. Easy application preferably a pump sprayer. My main concern in the slippery surface it would create for our young children. I'd also like it to prevent stains from leafs. We have a large tree on the neighbour's property. Located in Toronto Canada. Cold winters here
